Bring Ideas to Market

We can help you introduce new products and services to the market, or evolve existing products to address unmet needs in other high-growth sectors.

Looking for guidance, funding or partnerships?

If your company has a strong idea, a product ready for real world testing, or has identified a gap in the market, we can help you access guidance, funding, and partnerships.

We connect you to the right resources and contacts quickly and at no charge through our SmartBusiness Program. We are your one-stop shop for navigating business development programs and resources available to Halifax businesses.

Are you in any of these stages?


  • Do you have an idea but not sure what to do with it?
  • Do you need an objective team to help you brainstorm?

Qualify the Opportunity

  • What will the challenges be?
  • Who are your competitors?
  • What is the market opportunity?
  • Who are the potential partners?

Resource It

  • What funding is available?
  • Who are potential mentors?
  • What training or talent do you need?
  • Who are your potential customers in the region to help you test it?

We can connect you to the researchers, facilities, funding programs, and equipment your business needs to innovate, and convert ideas into revenue.

  • “Minder is methodological in his approach. For example, he recognized I needed a programmer and provided connections through Saint Mary’s University to find one. It’s been priceless working with him because every contact he has given me has been influential in my work.”
